Re: GH2 Macro Fun

DOF is ridiculous. What lens, Kevin? Your DOF was less than a 1/4" inch! Amazing stuff, well done.

I have an issue with Vimeo, maybe you know the answer. My pans for videos for videos I upload to Vimeo are jerky, even though the original footage is smooth. A three minute video as I upload it is around 300MB, I wonder if my large files are the cause? Your pans look perfect.

Re: GH2 Macro Fun

Lenses are Nikons of yore, a Micro-Nikkor 55/3.5 and a 70-210/4-5.6 zoom with a reversal adapter. The reversed zoom is interesting, as it becomes more or less a fixed ~90mm that you focus by zooming... and since the zoom on that lens is push/pull, and for most of that piece I was set shooting straight down, I could sometimes let gravity do my focus pulling with electrical tape assist. Still need a lot of practice, but that's what this piece was.

I couldn't tell you what Vimeo likes more than what. My uploads are typically h.264 @ ~5-7mbps via Compressor, for whatever that's worth.
